Project SummaryThe goal of the project is to create a new wax melter design for MPI that will work with water soluble waxes that contain fiber glass and other fibrous structures to replace the current design that clogs when faced with these waxes.
Intellectual Property ConsiderationsThe designs created for the wax melter are the intellectual property of the group members and the Rochester Institute of Technology; however, MPI retains the commercial rights to anything created over the course of this senior design project.
Customer NeedsMSD II Based on customer's response to the final design, the scope of the project was narrowed to focus primarily on the melting of wax in the tank. Thus, the customer needs were simplified to reflect this scale-down of the project.
A chart showing a pairwise comparison of the customer's top rated needs can be found below. The pairwise comparison was used to help determine which needs should be focused on the most.
SpecificationsThe customer needs were compared to the engineering specifications to determine which engineering specs should receive the most attention to best satisfy the customer's needs.
